Review: YSL Touche Éclat Blur Perfector & Blur Primer

August 28, 2015

The-Glossier-YSL-Touche-Eclat-Blur-Perector-Primer-12 copyRecently, I’d all but given up on makeup primers; I was tired of not being wowed, or seeing a dramatic difference from when I used them, and when I didn’t. I was beginning to question if primers were even necessary, or if they were just another product brands produce to make extra money. Well, that sentiment changed tenfold, when I got to try out both the YSL Touch Éclat Blur Perfector, and the Blur Primer, and I’m never looking back. Continue Reading…

Fly Girl

The-Glossier-Tasha-James-Fashion-Blogger-Style-Outfit-DC-19-RecoveredYou know how sometimes, after you get dressed, you think, “Wow, this looks familiar?”—sometimes, you get inspired by someone subconsciously, and don’t realize it. That’s how I felt when I put this outfit on; I knew there were major 90s vibes happening, but I couldn’t figure out from where. Then it hit me, as I’m fluffing up my huge hair (thanks humidity!), I just blurt out, “ROSIE PEREZ!”

That 70s Flow

August 13, 2015

The-Glossier-Fashion-Blogger-Style-Outfit-Trendy-70s-Alexandria-6 copyUnless you’ve been living in seclusion for the last few months, you would have noticed how 70s fashion has come back with a vengeance. There was this glamour from that era that everyone had—whether they were in full-on hippy mode, or a disco diva, everyone just looked so amazing all of the time. It was a decade for making statements, both politically, and fashion-wise, and sometimes, the two intersected; it was all about rebellion, and being free—fast forward to 2015, and we can see many parallels to the civil rights, feminist, and anti-war movements in the 70s, it’s very fitting that 70s fashion would make an emergence.

The-Glossier-DermaE-Hydrating-Serum-Review-1 copySkincare junkie, checking in!

I thought I’d share my thoughts with you today on a new serum that I’ve been trying out, by Derma E, called the Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid. I’ve only recently begun to incorporate products containing hyaluronic acid recently, and I’ve noticed big changes to my skin! I was not disappointed with this product whatsoever, and I’ll tell you why after the jump.

Can’t Stand The Heat

July 24, 2015

The-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-15 copyThis is the summer of suffering. We either have torrential downpour rain, or scorching temperatures, and nothing in between. I’m definitely pairing down my wardrobe a bit, i.e. I ditched the jackets—for now, summer has won. Continue Reading…

The White Idea

July 13, 2015

The-Glossier-Blogger-Fashion-Style-All-White-Summer-Lookbook-8Lately (as you can probably guess), I’ve been obsessed with all-white outfits. Typically, I’m someone who is cursed when it comes to all-white, I almost always come home with some crazy stain, in some place I didn’t even know you could get stains. Recently, though, I’ve been pretty good with keeping my white clothes clean, so, just as anyone with a streak such as mine would do—I’m pressing my luck.

Kidding Around

July 2, 2015

Tasha-James-The-Glossier-Overalls-Adidas-Vans-Red-Lips-Style-Fashion-Blogger-17 copyToday, I dressed totally for comfort. We attended an Instagram meetup earlier in the evening (check it out on my snapchat, username: theglossier), and I knew we’d be walking around a bit. Overalls remind me of those years between 5 and 12, when I had no perception of danger, trees were climbed, bikes were pedaled at top speeds, scraped knees, mosquito bites everywhere, neighborhood tag was the biggest summertime event, we were reckless, wild, and we had no rules, only fun. That’s how I wanted to feel today. Carefree, and fun.

Photo Diary: White House Lifts 40 Year Old Ban on Photography | #WhiteHouseTour

July 2, 2015

Tasha-James-The-Glossier-White-House-Tour-Photo-Ban-Lift-2015-40 copyYesterday, I was honored to attend the very first public White House Tour that allowed photography and social media. For over 40 years, the White House has banned guests from taking photography on tour, and in an effort to make this the most accessible White House in history, the ban has been lifted. Photographs (but not video) and sharing to social media are encouraged for anyone who takes the tour, and that’s a great thing, because the White House is extremely photogenic!

Fringe Benefits

June 29, 2015

Tasha-James-The-Glossier-Fashion-Blogger-HM-Calvin-Klein-Jeans-Bloglovin-Awards-Skate-Park-DC-1 copyCrop tops and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly—this one, from H&M is one that I picked up a couple of weeks ago, and even though I wasn’t sure how to style it, I had to buy it for the tassel fringe alone. I love when clothing has fun little details that just add a bit of dimension to an otherwise simple piece. The tassels make me feel like dancing, and moving around; I can definitely see this being great for festivals, or a night out dancing. I thought it would be fun to style it for daytime though, and incorporate it into my usual denim uniform.
